Casa de Manana La Jolla is very high-class. The design is a beautiful, old, California style of architecture. The facility is in a very elegant place with old Spanish architecture. There's a library with anthropology journals in it. The students come down and do cello concerts. It's a very nice place. It's sort of intellectual. They have outings and entertainment. People come down from the university and give lectures. It's not bingo. It's top of the line.

Casa de Manana was very nice and in a wonderful location. The dining room and their lobby were beautiful. The people were very friendly. The lady who took us around knew all of the residents that we met by name, and I was very impressed by that.

Casa de Manana was terrific and very clean. The lady was very competent and forthcoming and gave us a lot of information on the tour. We had lunch there, and it was good. The dining room has an ocean view. The rooms were small. What surprised me was they had a small kitchen, and the appliances were old. They said nobody uses them; that's why they don't put new appliances in. They had a lot of activities. I like the overall impression of the place. Somebody I know lives there, and she loves it. There is no upfront fee -- just a monthly charge.

I like Casa de Manana's location. It is close to the beach. You could just walk over to the ocean and walk around La Jolla. It is very nice. My friend was in a very small room, and there wasn't much room to move around in. They just had one big room where they held singing at Christmastime and Thanksgiving dinner, and they would turn it into a crafts room, so they didn't have much in the way of entertainment to keep your mind going. Food was nice, but it was simple and nothing fancy.

The assisted living of Casa Manana was across the street from the main part, and you had to cross the busy street to get to the regular dining room. The staff was really high quality people. I had lunch there, and the food was really nice. The rooms were built before 1940 and they didn’t have a thermostat for each rooms. They made you bring your own personal air conditioner and heater. They have a tiny refrigerator and a microwave. They have a library and a common room, which was nicely decorated.

The Casa De Manana had been a very elegant hotel in the 1920s. The original dining room was beautiful. They have a beautiful library overlooking the ocean. The rooms are original to the hotel, and then they built a couple of several-story buildings across the street, and one was for memory care. It's very well laid out. They also have every kind of activity for the residents, including a swimming pool and a movie theater. It was really beautiful, very nice.

This is a really nice place. It is set up with a main building and several outside apartments for residents with more independence. The common areas are especially nice. They are always kept very clean and well taken care of. The staff have always been very attentive and friendly, and the workers in the eating area are especially attentive with meal requests and things of that sort. I did not personally find the food appetizing, but it was much better than I've seen at other locations, and my grandmother was always happy with it. Most of all, The Casa seems to have a really nice community, as they are frequently taking residents out on trips to local areas. They also have many local events and gatherings that keep the residents friendly and social. My main complaint is that they keep raising the price and the place is expensive enough as is, but if you can afford it this is a great place to live.
